Chennai, January 31: President of Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi, Thirumavalavan urged Indian government to sponsor a resolution at the council to ensure an investigation led by international judges into the alleged war crimes in the final stages of the civil war in Sri Lanka in 2009. United Nations Human Rights Council is all set to meet in Geneva in March, Thirumavalavan urged to investigate into war crimes of civil war in Sri Lanka.
As government led by Maithiripala Sirisena in Sri Lanka was consistently misleading the international community about the status of Tamils and their rehabilitation, he urged United Nations Human Rights Council to probe into the war crimes during civil war in Sri Lanka 2009.
Thirumavalavan said that Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi VCK, Social Democratic Party of India SDPI, Tamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi, Tamil nationalist parties and Periyarite groups will soon protest to urge Indian government to investigate into the final stages of war crimes. He also said that Sri Lanka regime led by Maithiripala Sirisena has been misleading the international community by stating that there is peace between Sinhalese and Tamils. Also they misleaded the international community by saying that Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) have been rehabilitated and the army has returned the lands belonging to Tamils.
Urging to Indian government Thirumavalavan said that “It has disseminated wrong information about what is happening on the ground. It has continued to mislead the international community by saying that there is peace between Sinhalese and Tamils, assured that the former LTTE combatants have been rehabilitated and that the army has returned most lands belonging to the Tamils. These are not facts. And, the Indian government is siding with the Sri Lankan government.”
Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam leader Vaiko stressed upon the request made by Thirumavalavan and demanded to conduct a voting session in Northern and Eastern regions of Sri Lanka. Vaiko wrote in a mail to United Nations General Secretary saying that “I have explained the history of the conflict and underscored how Sri Lankan Tamils have been subjected to injustice. In my statement, I have also presented evidence for the war crimes committed by Sri Lankan armed forces in the final stages of the war.” He too backed up with Thirumavalavan’s words and urged to probe into the final stages of civil war of Sri Lanka 2009
